I gave her the diet, and in a few weeks she was walking without the cane. She was following the diet.
Then a few months later she started with the cane again. I asked her if the diet had quit working and she said that the diet was great but she just couldn't give up her pasta and fruit.
I'd rather walk than eat any particular food. And I'd much rather give up certain foods than eventually need a knee or hip replacement. When the doc recommended this diet, I though I was headed for a hip replacement, now it's 99.999% better. If I drive in a car for 8 or so hours without cruise control, I get a sensation in my hip reminding me of bygone days. It isn't pain, or ache, just a slight discomfort.
The main things the diet forbids are:
1) High glycemic foods - great for us with keto
2) High arachidonic acid foods - chicken - eggs - organ meats - preferring grass-fed beef to grain-fed or grain-finished. This one is more difficult but giving up egg yolks and chicken works for me. I love chicken and eggs but I never liked organ meats. I like the taste of grass-fed beef better.
3) Nightshades for some - I can do nightshades my DW cannot. I do very little, not keeping it around the house to torture her taste buds.
So far, I don't know of a single person that this diet hasn't worked for.
Give it a month at 100% and if you don't feel better, let me know.
